“A New Educational Video: ‘Now, Here’s A Curious Thing…”:
This is one of my most favorite ways of clarifying my knowledge on this subject. I highly recommend taking the quiz.
True or false? The testimony of any person that your earnings are derived from federal privilege is enough evidence for a federal court to accept it as true, regardless of whether this testimony is correct:
I got this one correct!
And isn’t that interesting how the system works?
Choose one. The 1099, W-2, K-1, and similar tax forms get their power to become evidence that the earnings declared are income and federally-connected from:
A) The clever re-definition in the tax law of ordinary words and phrases such as “wages”, “employee”, and “trade or business”.
B) The lack of any countervailing evidence to the testimony contained on the forms.
C) The presumption of the courts that such testimony is correct.
D) All of these reasons.
I got this one correct!
I’m especially fascinated with the facts of A).
Take the quiz:
Then I took this one and got 100%!:

announcement for the up coming first annual conference.
What a fabulous sounding 4th of July! I underscore the request for recording the event.
Also interested in knowing whether the presentation regarding the “Constitution” may be coming from a generally “conventional” perspective with a belief that the Constitution stands alone or whether it may come from a perspective with lawful continuity as one of the four Organic Laws – as recognized in the opening pages of the “United States Code”.(1) One of the reasons I’d like to know is that In the second Organic Law (known as the Articles of Confederation) we have the term “free inhabitant”. I have blogged about this:

“Income tax” liability “involves the exercise of privilege.”
Flint vs Stone Tracy Co. 220 U.S. 107 (1911) “Excises are taxes laid upon the manufacture, sale or consumption of commodities within the country, upon licenses to pursue certain (licensed) occupations and upon corporate privileges; the requirement to pay such taxes involves the exercise of privilege.” “…Conceding the power of Congress to tax the business activities of private corporations … the tax must be measured by some standard… It is therefore well settled by the decisions of this court that when the sovereign authority has exercised the right to tax a legitimate subject of taxation as an exercise of a franchise or privilege, it is no objection that the measure of taxation is found in the income…”: http://usa-the-republic.com/revenue/true_history/Chap3.html

Just found the most concise abstract of “Breaking The Code” by using the search terms:
“federal income tax”privilege
In my Google search it’s the 8th result:
“FEDERAL INCOME TAX LAW IN A NUTSHELL”.
The Federal Income Tax is “a tax on only a specialized subset of the larger class of income, consisting exclusively of revenues attributed to the voluntary, profitable use of federal privilege, property or powers– that is, revenues in which the federal government has a direct ownership interest, and to which it can therefore exercise a direct claim as a matter of right. …
The income tax is a tax on gains from voluntary involvement in federal activities-either as a worker/office holder, or as an investor or beneficiary-and nothing else.”:

I do not know of a more complete yet most succinct statement regarding the true nature of “The Federal Income Tax” as stated directly above here in the “July 11th” post. And if that statement alone is not sufficiently clear then the newsletter linked above will enlarge upon the thought!
Lawful Tax Avoidance
Why “reduce” when you can completely and Lawfully avoid the tax altogether?
Initially published at CureZone as of: 11/16/2016
The very best that a conventional tax consultant can typically offer is what they call “Tax Reduction Planning”. However, if you are not lawfully required to pay a tax then why “reduce” when you can completely avoid the tax altogether? Are you liable for Federal Income Taxes?
There has been a number of researchers of the federal tax code who have essentially “cracked the code” and I have blogged about a couple of these researchers in the past. Recently I have been introduced to another researcher who has a subscription to the Organic Laws Institute and who acknowledges the exceptional research of Dr. Ed Rivera. He presents himself as a tax avoidance expert. I’ve read his report and appreciate his legal references. I was inspired to ask if he would consider making a live presentation. He agreed! We … planned one for January 27th, 2017.

The “live presentation” is now in place!
Most recently I received additional clarification from our “tax avoidance expert” that I now find all the more interesting in light of Omraam’s current “Thought for the day”.
The expert wrote: “This is not about ‘reducing income taxes’. It is about altogether avoiding them. As in 100%. This idea alone freaks some people out, especially accountants and other IRS go betweens. It’s a threat to their livelihood. Too bad. They are dinosaurs …”.
Now the Omraam “Thought” in its entirety:
“Dinosaurs were reptiles with four legs that lived on earth millions of years ago, and we now know that birds are the product of their evolution. Over time and with successive transformations, the front legs of these reptiles have become wings. Yes, as unbelievable as it may sound, dinosaurs are the ancestors of birds. How to interpret this evolution? Perhaps among these reptiles there were some who were more enterprising, more daring, more curious who wanted to break free, tearing the ground. Some others followed suit, while others, lazy and stubborn, have continued to crawl. Take this interpretation as you want. Now transpose this phenomenon into the world of humans. Over the course of history there have always been the daring ones who wanted to open new paths, explore new lands. Some followed them, others refused to move, but it is thanks to the bold that humanity progresses. So it is up to each of us to decide whether we will continue to crawl along the ground or if we want to make an effort and take to the air, like a bird, and be free. – Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov”
I am deeply grateful for all the “bold” ones who dared to contribute what they could toward the “evolution” of “tax avoidance”. And now it appears we have “new paths” along this evolutionary line that are open for Individuals to consider. I am all the more grateful to be hosting one of these trail blazers!

Author Robert Heinlein reportedly left an index card in his safe (apparently to be discovered after his final threshold crossing) upon which he wrote that the two most important themes he wrote on were Freedom & Self-responsibility which he coupled together in three of his signature works including Stranger in a Strange Land. In Rudolf Steiner’s own words he regarded his “Philosophy of Freedom” as his greatest work. In the Gene Keys by Richard Rudd the 55th Gene Key is the only one of 64 Gene Keys that has the same theme for both the Gift frequency as well as the Siddhi. That shared theme is Freedom!
I believe that freedom is our genetic imperative. But what is freedom and how do we obtain it? I find it very interesting that according to the Gene Keys the 49th Gene Key (of Changing The World From The Inside) with the Gift of “Revolution” and Siddhi of “Rebirth” is very closely related to “Freedom” in the 55th as they are both part of the same Codon Ring. What does all of this have to do with “Lawful Tax Avoidance” one may ask?
The answer to this question depends upon how you define your freedom as well as the apparent opposite/s by whatever terms you wish to use (not limited to “slavery”). Steiner spoke of freedom in terms of our essential ability to think and to bring our thinking forces into our beliefs, attitudes as well as our conventionally shared thoughts in order to discover what these things are founded upon and how they pertain to us as Individual spiritual beings. The Gene Keys ask for contemplation upon all three frequencies of each Gene Key starting with those that are most prominent in the individual’s holographic profile. Freedom in the Gene Keys is obtained by facing, embracing and thus releasing the fear of the Shadow frequency of Victimization. I am convinced that freedom requires our dedication to an inner-work that leads to our personal transformation – mind renewal.
Can you have freedom from taxation and especially freedom from the fears that have been associated with tax evasion? Are you willing to rethink the beliefs about what “taxable income” consists of? Lawful taxation is based upon taxable income. Do you have taxable income according to what the Law says taxable income is?
“Only when we realize our potential to be a unique individual are we free. … it lies in our freedom to achieve freedom; only when we actively strive towards freedom do we have some chance of attaining it.”

Several of us gathered for the “Lawful Tax-Avoidance” event in San Diego on Friday the 27th. We each received a substantial handout that was much like the power point presentation. The presentation made mention of Joseph Banister who is an outstanding example of a true-blooded freedom-loving American and former IRS agent turned IRS truth advocate! I just found Joseph’s Forward to a book by William Conklin. I highly recommend reading it!
Also in this book are some conclusions, one of which is part of my search regarding the fear factor and the IRS which is how I found the book. Conclusion #8:
“Knowledge is power. On the other hand, ignorance breeds fear. The IRS is able to get away with its terrible abuse because lack of knowledge about their own rights leaves individuals afraid.”

Began offering complimentary “discovery sessions” in regards to “liability” for the Federal Income Tax.
Arthur Stopes, III writes:
“… learn to function as an American Citizen (technically, a State Citizen), not ‘Taxed’. All ‘U.S. citizens’ (technically, ‘citizens of the United States’, per the so-called ’14th Amendment’), are presumed to be domiciled in the District of Columbia, and therefore may be subject to ‘direct Taxes’ – and are, in fact, ‘subjects of the federal government’.
The writer has been flatteringly described by a federal Judge, in his Court, as a lawful tax avoider. I.e.; not a ‘tax evader’.”

We have a legal basis for lawfully avoiding the Federal Income Tax because:
“Income Tax is an Excise Tax” and the activities and priviledges that incur the excise tax are all avoidable!
Springer vs United States, 102 U.S. 586, 26 L. Ed. 253; “An income tax, under the internal revenue laws, is not a direct tax within the meaning of the Federal Constitution, but is within the category of an excise or duty.”
House Congressional Record, 27 March, 1943, page 2580
“The income tax is, therefore, not a tax on income as such. It is an excise tax……..”
See also American Airways vs Wallace, 57 F. 2d 877, 880 (Concerning excise taxes and privilege taxes.)
The Only Way A Person Can Be “MADE LIABLE” For Any Internal Revenue Tax Is By A Provision IN THE LAW (a statute or Code Section).
In the decision of Botta v. Scanlon, 288 F.2d 509 (1961), the United States Court of Appeals explained that there is only one way that a tax liability can be created. It stated: Moreover, even the collection of taxes should be exacted only from persons upon whom a tax liability is imposed by some statute. In Sutherland’s Rules of Statutory Construction, an authoritative reference book on interpretation of statutes, Section 66.03 states: …the obligation to pay taxes arises only by force of legislative action… Legislative action is the passage of a statute (a law). For anyone to be “liable” for income tax, it must be so stated in the IR Code.
Provisions Making Anyone Liable For Payment Of A Tax Must Be Stated In CLEAR, UNDERSTANDABLE LANGUAGE.
In the decision of Higley v. Commissioner of Internal Revenue, 69 F.2d 160, head note 2 states: Liability for taxation must clearly appear from statute imposing tax. Sutherland’s Rules of Statutory Construction under Section 66.01 titled Strict Construction of Statutes Creating Tax Liabilities refers to the U.S. Supreme Court decision of Gould v. Gould. 245 U.S. 151 which states: In the interpretation of statutes levying taxes it is the established rule not to extend their provisions by implication beyond the clear import of the language used, or to enlarge their operation so as to embrace matters most strongly against the government, and in favor of the citizen.
I.R. CODE Provisions Imposing Liability Are CLEARLY STATED And Use The Word “LIABLE”.
The word “liable” is found in I.R. Code Section 4401(c), 5005(a), 5703(a) and 1461 which create liabilities for wagering tax, distilled spirits tax, tobacco tax and “income” tax respectively. Section 1461 is the ONLY section in the I.R. Code imposing a liability for payment of “income” tax. That section applies to WITHHOLDING AGENTS ONLY (those required by Section 1441 and 1442 to deduct and withhold from payments of “income” owed to foreign persons). Section 1461 states: Every person required to deduct and withhold any tax under this chapter is hereby made liable for such tax.

In addition to the fear factor (mentioned above) there is the authority factor. Actually these are two sides of the same “coin”. Our fears feed the outer authorities and the outer authorities feed our fear. You can certainly call it a fear-based torus.
The following is something Ra Uru Hu had to say about this.
“We’re here to live what is correct for us, not what is expected of us. …—my big thing is authority. And I know a lot about authority. I have a 1st line in my profile, I’m a 5/1, and I have ten 1st lines in my design. I have a lot of 1st lines. First lines thematically are related to authority. I’m purely individual. I don’t like authority. Individuals don’t anyway. They don’t like having anyone tell them what to do or not to do, all of these things.
So, authority is something that I am well aware of. I live out a role as an authority, so it all has its humor. But there is a dark part of that, a deeply dark part of that. It’s what the seven-centered being gave us. What it gave us was the bowing down to authority. That’s what it gave us. It’s not about it being bad. This is the way, obviously, that human beings were organized. They were organized that way. This is the way they were controlled. It’s the way we’ve always been controlled. We give up our authority.
You’re taught that from the moment you come into the world you have no authority. You come into the world, you have no authority. You’re not allowed any authority. Children are not allowed authority. They have to accept the authority of their parents, they have to accept the authority of older siblings, and they have to accept the authority of teachers. And as they grow up they begin to see that everybody is accepting somebody else’s authority. They get to see that their mother is accepting the authority of their father and their father is accepting the authority of their boss and so forth and so on.
And that on whatever day they pray they all go together to their particular whatever and they all bow down to an even greater authority that has a greater authority over them. And once a year they all fill out their tax forms. In service to, in payment to that authority that they recognize as an authority over them, that rules over them.
Everything about the seven-centered being, everything about the way in which the hierarchy was established was established in that way through authority. You give up your authority. The moment you give up your authority you become a sheep. And you can be led this way or that because you have no authority. This is a seven- centered being.”
This inspired me to also look at the Gene Key correlation that I see in the 21st Gene Key with the three major frequencies identified as: Shadow: Control, Gift: Authority and Siddhi: Valour. “Control” has “much to do with power and money”. Gene Keys author Richard Rudd writes: “One of the major areas to plague human beings and the cause of enormous conflict and violation of basis human rights is the issue of control. All control is rooted entirely in a single theme – territory. … In the past, control was about resources and food, and food depended on maintaining and defending your territory. In the modern world however, the battlefield has changed even through the genetic dynamic has not. Today the battleground is money, and this 21st Shadow has much to do with power and money.”
Government is based on “territory” and that fact in Law is known as proprietary jurisdiction. The phrase “proprietary jurisdiction” is not one that is taught in the public school system and therefore it is natural that people who have been raised/conditioned under this system are most largely ignorant of the basis for Lawful government! Consequently there is a great need for re-educating individuals regarding the Lawful basis of government in general and in regards to taxation in particular. There is an equally great if not greater need for educating individuals about their Human Design and the how their nine-centeredness is their basis for their inner authority.
 From a private correspondence on 1/19/17 between this writer and the “tax avoidance expert”.
 I find this an interesting phrase that I wish I could inquire with Omraam about.
